Phillip Patterson’s handwritten Bible

May 6, 2013

Phillip Patterson, struggling with AIDS, has taken four years out of his life to handwrite out a King James Bible.  See the article here, a blog here, and a set of photographs here.

For Bible nerds out there, it appears he is using the Hendrickson facsimile of the Oxford University Press 1833 Roman type transcription of the 1611 KJV.
